I have been using NLP for 6 months now, but just recently have started using the Lightroom profile NLP v2.1.
I read on this forum that it was the correct profile for scanning DNG negatives with my scanners (Epson V600 for medium format and Plustek 8100 for 35mm).
What I found is that the v2.1 profile darken the negatives quite a lot in Lightroom, meaning lighter positives (I usually need to reduce brightness around -10 to -20).
I dont believe my shots are over-exposed, and the negatives look fine before conversion to v2.1 profile.
Is the change in brightness from this profile voluntary? Should I keep using it? (it doesn’t impact final result, apart from the fact that I always need to reduce brightness).
I searched on the forum but didn’t find similar issue. If I missed it and there is already a discussion on it, please feel free to just forward the link to me!
I am fairly beginner in editing properly with NLP so any advice would be appreciated.
